Richard's Kids and Hospice Rant

2007-11-05 :: Length: 17s
Richards Kids Story We often hear people say that Christmas should be about the children and it should be about giving. Richard Powers, founder of Richards Kids and the legion of volunteers who work year round for the non profit organization definitely live that credo. Richard and Sarah Powers started the charity eight years ago in response to learning of a Rabun County elementary school boy who wore only hand me down clothes and was walking out of his over sized shoes. Richard, a retired fire fighter captain was unable to sleep at night worrying about that little boy. He resolved to do something about the childâ??s situation by spending his own money to purchase clothes for the boy. That one simple act of giving took off. The elementary school teachers informed Richard that there were many other children in the same situation and they began working with Richard to set up a program to hekp children in need. Richard began speaking to civic groups and sharing his story. Few people can keep a dry eye when Richard tells the story of a teacher who wrote him about a child who had only one pair of worn out tennis shoes and a pair of flop flops and all her tights had holes in them. The teacher asked the child what she wanted for Christmas and she replied, "Some cookies would be nice". The teacher then asked her what toy she would like Santa to bring her and she replied, "Santa never brought me a toy." That true story and others like it propelled the giving people of Rabun County as well as many people outside of the County to spring into action to support Richardâ??s Kids. In addition to donations from individuals, several businesses in Rabun, Atlanta and Florida have made Richard Kids their primary holiday charity. While Richards Kids provides clothing for youth in need year round, Christmas is the organizationsâ?? busiest season. Richard estimates that the Countyâ??s need in 2007 may be 500 children. Each child receives three pairs of pants, three shirts, underwear, socks, shoes and one toy. The approximate cost per child for the Christmas purchases is $125.00. To supply clothing for 500 children, the non-profit organization will require funds in excess of $50,000.…
